Marc strives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with energy production. He is leading the CO2 capture and conversion theme, one of several areas of research being funded at the university through a $75-million grant from the federal Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF). Marc is currently developing ecologically robust processes for conversion of atmospheric carbon dioxide to fuels with algae, as well as for subsurface decarbonization of fossil fuels. He is also exploring the impact of fugitive methane in the subsurface.
